Massachusetts Police charge anti-Trump man that crashed into Trump store with felony charges
This morning we shared the story about the man driving a 2015 Volkswagen Jetta who had crashed into the New England for Trump store. Here is an update on that story.
At approximately 5:10pm on Thursday, June 16, 2022, Easton Police Officers were dispatched to 620 Washington Street (Route 138) for a reported vehicle crash into a building.
On the back of the Jetta was an anti-Trump bumper sticker which had a Voltaire quote and a barcode on Trump’s upper lip in a reference to Adolph Hitler.
“Just before he did that, there was a little boy with his mother shopping right in that spot,” said Keith Lambert, the store’s owner. “The clerk was about to go to the bathroom and he would’ve gotten hit.”
46-year old Sean Flaherty, of Raynham has been charged with reckless operation of a motor vehicle and malicious destruction of property, the latter being a felony. Police now believe that there is probable cause that the crash was purposeful and committed with malice.
